Injuries after plane hits truck at LA Airport
An investigation is under way after a passenger plane flipped a truck on its side at Los Angeles International Airport, leaving two people seriously injured.
Authorities say the right wing tip of the AeroMexico Boeing 737 "acted like a hook" as it was crossing a service road on the way to an arrival gate on Saturday.
